The best place to stay in Tuscany
The pictures on the website doesn't give justice to this wonderful place. The house is very beautiful and it's located five minutes from the train station and main road.
Mauro and his family are the most loving people you will ever meet. They did everything to make us feel like family. Mauro went above and beyond by assisting us with our needs and recommending the best places to visit. His sister Laura is a wonderful cook and great host.
The house accommodations were as describe on the web site if not better. We highly recommend this place. You will not be disappointed.
At the end of our 10 day stay we felt that we found new friends.
We can not thank Mauro enough for all of his kindness.
Dear Diaz family
Thank you for your words, we are happy to have met the families Diaz, you have been the wonderful guests, and we hope to see you again, with you is born a beautiful friendship, thanks again to me and Laura.
Ciao Mauro and Laura
Beautiful and magical holyday resort.
Casa le Celle is truly a magical place. The magic started when we met Mauro at the train-station in Terontola, he guided us up the narrow winding road to the house where we stayed for the next 10 days.
The old house was so inviting and charming. Our hosts Mauro and Gala welcomed us with vine and bread on our arrival, they were so good to us and helpful, Gala treated us with delicious cakes on numerous occasion.
The house is spacious on two floors, three bedroom on the top floor and one downstairs, the surroundings gave lots of opportunities to lay back and enjoy the amazing nature, sitting areas all around in the beautiful garden, small swimming pool to cool down in the heat and hammock in the shades of the trees. We ordered dinner from our hosts on Saturday evening. They invited my wife and daughter to their house to watch when Laura, Mauro´s sister prepared for the meal and made some homemade Italian pasta. The dinner was very delicious, as was the breakfast they made for us.
This is ideal location for families, both for relaxation or sightseeing as well as daytrips to Cortona, Montepulciano, Perugia and other places.
On behalf of my family, thank you Mauro and Gala for making our stay so memorable, tell Tiche that the children love her.
Casa le Celle gets our highest recommendation.
Thanks Bjarni Jarlsson and family for your beautiful words, I, Gala and Laura are very happy to have had you as guests, you are very kind and friendly, and we miss you all, Tiche is sad without your beautiful kids, we hope in the future to have you even in our house

A lovely holiday
This was a wonderful place to stay for 2 weeks. Mauro made us feel very welcome, he helped us with anything we needed AND he cooked 2 amazing meals for us. There were plenty of places for different members of the family to sit - by the pool, in the shade etc. The views and silence were fantastic. It was a great spot to visit beautiful hill towns and the nearby lake. Some of the group went to Florence and the trip was so easy on the nearby rail line. We enjoyed many great BBQs but also found lovely restaurants nearby too. A lovely retreat and great value. We would highly recommend it.
Thanks Anne, to you to your family and friends, it was a pleasure to have you as guests, your education, kindness was very welcome, I would still have you in our guest house. Thanks thanks thanks
Beautiful holiday retreat
Quite posibly one of the most idyllic holiday destinations we've ever stayed in.
This house far exceeded our expectations, warm and spacious with plenty of natural light. The house is split over 2 levels, which we loved as it meant we could spread ourselves out!
Plenty of old charm character, but with modern facilities, it was a pleasure to return to the house in the evening after a day of sightseeing.
Situated in an ideal location too for all the main towns and cities, Cortona is only a 10 minute drive away and you have excellent supermarkets within the same distance.
Mauro, the owner is very friendly, laid back, warm and hospitable. He provided us with firewood and wine and bread on our arrival!
If you want a wonderfully spacious, very quiet location, but within easy reach of some of the most beautiful towns and cities then this is definitely the house for you. We absolutely loved it and without doubt would be more than happy to stay there again.
Thank you Paul, youwritten beautifull words about us and our property, for me and Gala has been easy because you and family are very kind family, and we hope to see you again future.
A beautiful, original Tuscan house in great settings and wonderful hosts
Our family of 5 (all adults/teens) stayed in Gala and Mauro's beautiful Tuscan house for two weeks in July. The house is gorgeous and tastefully decorated. The four bedrooms are spacious and the 2 baths made it easy to accommodate our family. The kitchen is small, but fine and we cooked many meals there.
The small pool was perfect for cooling down on the hot days and the pool area a nice place to enjoy a read or play a game of table tennis. There are great hiking possibilities in the mountais with fantastic views of the area, and the nearby Cortona is worth many visits. There are tourists in Cortona, but if you can ignore that, the town has so many treasures - churches, monestaries, medieval and renaissance art, gorgeous views and good restaurants. Easy access to e.g. Siena, Arezzo, Assisi, Firenze, and Montalcino made it a great location for us.
Gala and Mauro are the perfect hosts, and were always available and very helpful when we needed them. Mauro met us in nearby Terontola and guided us to the house where we were greeted by Gala who had prepared delicious bruschettas and left us wine and olive oil. This made us feel very welcome.
We recommend trying the meal, which is offered by Mauro's sister. She cooks traditional Tuscan meals, and brings it to the house. It was really delicious (and plenty of it) and served with great wine.
We would love to come back to this wonderful place, where we were able to wind down, relax, regenerate, and enjoy.
Thank you, Mauro and Gala, for a great stay.
Christian, Bente, Valdemar, Regitze, and Benedicte
Thank you Christian and family for your words, you have been perfect guests, and we really hope to see you again in our house
